When migrants venture through the desert in hopes to arrive to America, they do out of desperation and the necessity for health and refuge. These journeys are painstaking and taken due to a complete lack of resources and the sanctity of human preservation. The American administration has chosen to treat these refugees as criminals, separating their families, and locking them in detention centres.
The government justifies these policies with racist, untrue rhetoric. It is estimated that there are over 2000 children in detention centres without their parents. Many are sleeping on concrete floors and have extremely limited access to healthcare, nutritious food, and proper hygiene.
